Why do we like this?

And now we interrupt our programming for something a little bit different.

In case you weren't aware, the past few years I've been on a bit of a jazzy beats kick. Typically that means a more low-key, laid-back vibe.

J-Fills has bucked the recent trend though with a fast-paced, upbeat jazz vibe that manages to bring in elements of 1990s video-game-golf-background-music and sharp-as-heck 2022 production skills. The net result has me coming back to listen over and over again, though I can't quite put my finger on exactly where to put it.

Turns out I'm not alone. Even J-Fills himself is stumped:

I think it’s difficult to define an album like this as jazz. It’s a fusion of many genres like soul, classical and even hip-hop. I like jamming at the piano, stumbling on cool hooks and chord progressions, which unlocks a door in my brain, then I just let it stew for a while. I give space for my mind to be creative and let it go where it goes. This album is full of songs inspired from those moments.

Net-net, "Begotten" is a winner, certainly worth of the many hyphenations used throughout this article.
